So What Happened to Oct/Nov. Haircolors

Standard

I am pretty sure I have Creative Attention Deficit Disorder.  I cannot seem to finish most every thing I start creatively (and in every other aspect of my life).  I am all amped up and buy everything I need (and more) to get me going but halfway through I get distracted by something else and I am off on a different creative path.

It makes me crazy that I am that way but I seem to not be able to change.  I don’t know if I was always like this, but it has been my modus operandi for the past two decades.

Someday I may seek a therapist to help me understand why I do the things I do (my mom and hubs would say it is a form of rebellion and perhaps, they are right….but don’t tell them that or they will think they are right all the time and my life will be a living hell!)

So getting back to my hair…..I did bleach it all out for October to go Opal but as these photos will reveal, the blue did not bleach out and I was not about to bleach it again as my scalp goes numb for a good 24 hours after a bleaching session and even I think that can’t be healthy.   So I just added an ash blonde toner to it and as it washed out it became opalescent but I have no photos to prove it.  (I did but because I am so technically challenged I thought if I added photos from my general photos to a “Hair” album that I could delete them from the general photos and they would stay in the album.  Either that is not true, or I did it wrong because all the photos that I deleted after putting them in albums are now gone from my ipad.  Whether or not they are up in that elusive “Cloud” I do not know as I have no idea how to access this “Cloud”.   It is such a challenge being me…..)

And in keeping with the technology challenged thread, it just took me 20 minutes how to figure out how to access my photos from my ipad to post these pictures since WordPress changed the format on my blog….no wonder I have high blood pressure.

So, since October was a bust, I kinda was dishearten about November and knew that if I colored it Topaz for November, I would have to bleach it all out for December and I just wasn’t up for that so instead I buzzed the sides and back down to the nub.  I REALLY wanted to just buzz the whole thing but no matter what I do, I just can’t rock that Uncle Fester vibe.

So here it is, December’s look……the teal on the faux hawk is beautiful in real life…..the shapes are my husband’s doing….I KNOW, right…….but I must have gotten him in just the right mood cause he was game to try it.  He just said to me today, that he needs to recut the shapes since they have grown in since we did it two weeks ago. I have not left the house so I have no idea how this look will fly in public.  It must be my most dramatic do to date.  The first photo is my inspiration….the others are pure me!688DBCA7-0974-43A9-879A-83B0D5849238

This is right after Scott did the coloring so it is wet and in real life it is no quite that vibrant and the faux hawk stands straight up.   If I ever go anywhere and actually put on make-up, I will take a photo and show you how it looks today.

As far as next month and going Garnet…..we will just have to see…..

September Blues

Standard

This month is Sapphire Blue.  Took me two tries to get it this color.  But I think it is close!

I think I am going to invest in mock turtle-necks as the skin around my neck looks like I am a toad….now that I think of it, I am beginning to really look toadish.  Great…thank goodness this is only my temporary body.  My eternal body will be much less toadish I am sure.

Well, for better or worse, here I am…..

If It’s July, I Must Be Ruby

Standard

In keeping with my “Color A Month” year-long hair odyssey, this month my hair is the color of July’s birthstone~RUBY!

I used Directions Hair Color in RUBINE over my Pearl colored hair from last month.

I have about a half-inch root growth and I didn’t want to re-bleach it since I will have to bleach my head probably twice for next month’s color so I already have some white showing in the front of my hair.  Oh well, it will just add a bit of “rocker chic” to it!!!

Here I am in all my RUBY glory.  Please note I am not photogenic nor can I take a selfie to save my soul but ignore the face and focus on the hair color!

After attempting to take a non-horrific photo of myself, I sat down with my hubs to ask him which photos I should use and there was a guy on TV who had (in my opinion, ugly, greasy-looking hair) and I said to hubs, “Man that guy has ugly hair”….the look he gave me was absolutely priceless.  I guess RUBY is not his favorite hair color…..who knew?  After 33 years of countless haircolors and hair cuts and hair disasters, you would think he would be so used to my “quirkiness”, that nothing would phase him anymore.  I wonder if he is ever embarrassed by me?  Naw……it is what keeps us together…..I keep him on his toes….he never knows what he will come home to!

So until next month (I can’t wait to be Peridot!!!)
